The old Lucky 32 restaurant building on Spring Forest Road in north Raleigh has been sold to a new restaurant group called Kamado Grille. It will specialize in foods prepared on ceramic, kamado-style grills.
But there are scant other details available about when the new restaurant will open or what it will look like.
The Kamado Grille group, led by Raleigh businessman Joseph Dunn, paid $1.6 million for the 7,600-square-foot restaurant building at 832 Springfield Commons Dr. in late May, according to county deed records.
The restaurant building has been vacant since 2006 when the Greensboro-based owners of Lucky 32 shut the restaurant down after 12 years in business. Lucky 32 still has a location in Cary.
But it wasn't until 2013 that the Greensboro owners sold the empty north Raleigh building to local retail real estate investor Sam Longiotti, an owner in Crabtree Valley Mall, in 2013 for $1.1 million. Charles Lanier, director of real estate for Raleigh-based Plaza Associates, confirmed the sale of the building and that Tim Capps of the Savills Studley commercial real estate firm represented the buyer...New restaurant coming to old Lucky 32 building in north Raleigh
